Gives 3 usb ports, takes 2
on 29 September 2011
This seemed like the perfect way to tidy up some of the wire soup on my desk and hanging out of the back of my machine, but it't not all its cracked up to be.
Firstly the good, the audio and usb are carried in a single cable from the hub to the plugs, which fan out of the cable a couple of inches from the end.
Now the disappointments. This hub provides 3 usb sockets, but for some reason needs to be plugged in to 2 sockets on the back of your pc, so your giving up 2 sockets and only gaining one extra! Secondly, the cable is fairly short, under a metre I think, so its ok if your pc is directly under the desk hole, but it wont stretch much further. Finally, and this is more of a warning than a fault, this may not be the right size for the hole in your desk, it was significantly smaller than the hole in mine.
